The outspoken Irish singer says she’s got the embattled pop princess’ back.
“I’ve been keeping an eye on a girl who is getting a hard time in the media lately, and I just want her to know that if she needs a bodyguard, I’m her girl,” O’Connor said last night during her concert at L.A.’s Orpheum Theatre, according to a concertgoer. “I’d like to dedicate this song to Britney Spears.”
O’Connor went on to sing her version of “Rivers of Babylon,” the spiritual based on Psalm 137, about the Jews in exile. Alternative rockers Sublime also found success with “Babylon” when the group recorded a cover of the tune in 1996.
While we don’t have a video of last night’s performance, you can check out O’Connor singing it in the clip below during a gig in February. And for the latest in the Britney travails, check out our news story.
